Killybegs Crew continue to raise funds and awareness for spina bifida and hydrocephalus in Donegal with some tasty and creative activities.

The Donegal Branch of Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Ireland are just two years formed. When new parents, Stephen and Caroline Lafferty of Bruckless found a lack of support and information in the area, they got busy.

Over the last two years, the branch has held many fundraisers as well as social gatherings for members, families and carers.

Two of the latest initiatives are a Fish Ireland Exhibition and Seafood Barbeque and a raffle for a locally made curragh.

Well-known Killybegs celebrity chefs Frankie McClean and Tony Byrne will be doing what they do best, cooking up the freshest of local seafood and serving it hot off the barbee on the pier in Killybegs during the Fish Ireland exhbition on Friday, June 29. The exhibition itself continues through to Saturday, June 30, with lots of info, tastings and fun activities for all the family.

Raffle tickets for the curragh will also be on sale, at Stand No. 1, during the Fish Ireland exhibition. Eleven local men under the watchful eye of Ownie Diver recetnly learned the craft of making their own curragh. These gentlemen have offered up the fruit of their labour to a lucky winner. Tickets are just €10 and can also be purchased from any branch member.
